This is an online training course made up of six modules, three of which are mandatory and three chosen from elective modules.

Core Modules

  • Introduction to Security Management

An understanding of management principles is vital to the operation of a security team. Explore the role of management, as well as the financial, HR and operational skills and techniques needed to manage staff and resources.
